Description
"It was very uncomfortable at first, like falling off a cliff into a pit of snakes and crocodiles," Suzzy Roche told the Boston Globe about going solo after 20 years of singing with her sisters in the kinky and harmonious trio the Roches. Suzzy always seemed the most outgoing of the three, and the honesty, whimsy, and songwriting skills she showed in the ensemble carried over into this debut solo disc from 1997.

"The collection of 12 intensely personal songs reflects the sweet, meandering vocal quality and offbeat lyrics that gave the Roches the cult following they've built since the trio united in 1978."—Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Remarkably diverse, bouncing from the upbeat romantic resilience of My Broken Heart and the fear-driven muse of Lightning Storm to the mournful strains of Losing and the haunting tale of an unnamed indiscretion, ABC's. Vocally, her singsong timing and melodic swoops and slides complement her lyrics, maintaining the sense of a childlike power of open observation filtered (but not censored) through a mature perspective. David Mansfield's banjo lightens up the canine caroling of Crash, and Suzzy's own overdubbed inner voice adds a nice touch to Pink Ballet Slippers…. Maggie Roche also guests on a pair of tracks."—Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
